It became known earlier this week that HTC has scheduled an event in New York City that sounds a lot like an announcement for a new device. We’ve heard very little about new devices that might be coming from HTC so soon after the mid-year, but that hasn’t stopped people speculating that HTC could be announcing the rumoured HTC Nexus 8 tablet. Despite the fact that Google Nexus devices have more recently been announced by Google themselves, a leaked image from Verizon‘s website might hold a more substantial answer to that mystery: a HTC One M8 running Windows.
HTC hasn’t dabbled in Windows Phones for some time now, but it has a long association with the mobile platform. And with the HTC One M8 spearheading the way back into the black for the Taiwanese manufacturer, it’s almost a win-win for HTC and Microsoft to be releasing one of the best and most popular phones on the market with the fledgling operating system onboard. It’s expected that this Windows One M8 will make its appearance at the aforementioned HTC event, and we’d be surprised to see any Android announcements at the event.
What do you think about a HTC One M8 running Windows? Do you think this will be announced on August 19th, or something else will be? Let us know your thoughts.
